Well, we survived the storm. We never did get much rain, the power never went off, and the highest gust here at David's was 32mph although I believe we had higher gusts. We were very lucky - they are reporting that parts of New England will not have power for up to a week.

I made a dump run to get rid of some weeks old bluefish that was in the back of the fridge, and since I'm heading back to the mainland tomorrow at 6:30AM, spent much of the afternoon packing. I hope there is electricity in Hyannis. I really don't want to fill my gas tank here on the island where the gas cost is about $1.00 more per gallon than in Hyannis but as of this morning at least part of the city had no electricity. I guess I'll gamble!

When David gets home from work We will get out the ladder again & take down the weather station transmitter. According to Davis Instruments, the makers of the Vantage Vue, it is still under warrantee. They will send a new transmitter board & want the old one back. I hope Dave can do the replacement since I probably won't be back on the island until next year!
